Bello commended the outgoing Commandant, Mr Patrick Ukpan, for his commitment and dedication to duty.

“One of the achievements of Mr Ukpan is the fact that he has been a very committed member of the FCT Security Committee and almost all our interventions, be it a Task Force, in-house security meetings or other brainstorming security sessions he was always there.

“On behalf of my colleagues in the FCTA, we wish you the best in your new assignment and we assure you also that we will give maximum support to the person taking over from you because, at the end of the day, our objectives are all the same.” Bello was quoted as saying in the statement.
